Local Post offices in jeopardy

Posted on: 7th October 2018

Since the 2015 General Election scores of local post offices have faced the threat of closure. This is not merely a coincidence. It has everything to do with a Conservative Government which backtracked on a deal agreed when they were forced by their Liberal Democrat partners to accept reasonable protections for our vital rural post […]

Government’s £270 million cut in Cornwall’s NHS overshadows ongoing indecision

Posted on: 3rd October 2018

  An enforced Government cut of £270 million in Cornwall’s NHS by 2020 still overshadows the decisions of local health chiefs. Theyve submitted an important paper for the next “Transformation” Health Board Meeting next Monday 8th Oct for discussion/decision. Health campaigner and former Liberal Democrat MP Andrew George welcomed some of the few decisions which […]

Conservatives congratulated for finally admitting their policies have granted multi-million tax-dodge to wealthy second homers

Posted on: 26th June 2018

Prospective Liberal Democrat MP, Andrew George has welcomed signs that Conservatives now admit that their policies have been granting an “industrial-scale tax-dodge” for thousands of wealthy second homers. Mr George said, “Of course it’s embarrassing for the Conservatives. But we should at least congratulate them for finally admitting that their policies represent a shocking tax […]

Young voter apathy is great news for the well-heeled establishment

Posted on: 26th June 2018

Attending Mounts Bay Academy’s assembly this morning I told students that the well-heeled establishment is very content with young voter apathy. “The conservative establishment don’t want you to take an interest in politics. They don’t want you to vote. Because if you do… if you do… they’d have to take notice of you. Rather than […]

NHS “sticking plaster” cash promise is nothing like enough

Posted on: 17th June 2018

Today’s hastily cobbled together face-saving NHS cash initiative by the PM is nothing like enough. It won’t even come close to resolving the serious crisis her Government has placed our NHS in. Welcome as it is, the extra funding is a more of a sticking plaster for the tattered reputation of the Conservative Party than […]

National Park for Cornwall? Yes please

Posted on: 7th June 2018

I would support the case being made for a National Park for Cornwall. The Government’s relaxation of planning controls is harming our environment. The planning system is fuelled by greed rather than by need. Weak planning simply means we get more of what we don’t want and less of what we need. I work to […]

Nurses deserve a real champion

Posted on: 11th May 2018

Today (12th May) is National Nurses Day. Nurses are the ones with the patients. The backbone of our NHS. But they’re also massively undervalued. Many work in clinically unsafe environments where understaffing undermines the ability of committed nurses to give their patients the standard of care they seek to uphold. Safe staffing When i was […]

Liberal Democrats on the way back

Posted on: 4th May 2018

Commenting on last night’s local election results, Liberal Democrat leader Vince Cable said: “We are on course for what could be our best set of local election results in a decade and that is thanks to the outstanding efforts of our members. The Liberal Democrats have enjoyed gains across England, from Hull to Gosport, Liverpool […]

MPs must come clean – their policy will close more post offices

Posted on: 29th April 2018

  It’s time Conservative MPs came clean with local people about their real policy towards the our post offices. If the Government carries on as it is we’ll lose many more much valued local post offices. Many local people in communities like The Lizard and Newlyn are worried about the future of their services, and […]

Conservatives more concerned with how they look than in how our NHS is struggling under their mishandled supervision…

Posted on: 24th April 2018

So Jeremy Hunt has written to just fellow Conservative MPs to ask what he should do to make him and his Party look less bad. This after all of those years of distain towards and mismanagement of our NHS. Jeremy Hunt wants to drape himself in an NHS which is a thousand times more popular […]
